As I was typing this last night I thought “This probably isn’t the best post for Valentine’s Day”, then I thought “Oh well, it’s what’s on the menu!” Lol!! Who am I to conform to the norm? I’m not, as most of you know 😉
I’ve been back on a soup kick lately and wanted some French onion soup, so I scoured the internet and came up with this one as a combination of a few recipes. I can never agree with just one recipe. I also don’t like buying a whole loaf of french bread for french onion soup, not using the rest and feeding it to the birds. Kind of expensive bird food. So, I also solved that little dilemma also!
If you’re looking for some tasty soup and easy enough for a weeknight, you’ve come to the right place.
French Onion Soup
3 T. unsalted butter
2 c. sliced onions
1 (14.5 oz.) can beef broth or homemade stock
2 T. dry sherry (optional)
1 t. dried thyme
salt and pepper to taste
croutons (your choice of flavor)
2 slices Swiss cheese
1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
I chop my onions to bite size, you don’t have to do this, it is just a personal preference. Do not brown the onions.
Turn the oven to broil.
Enjoy and don’t kiss any one too soon 😉 Happy Valentine’s day peeps!! xoxo
